Tax Code 179 Helps Your Business’ Bottom Line


Whether you love President Trump or hate him,with The Tax Cuts and Jobs Acts, your business can get a huge tax break on business purchases in 2018.

In previous tax years, businesses could reasonably expect to write off apercentage of the total cost of new equipment purchased. For example, if a company in 2017 purchased up to $2 million worth of new equipment, they were eligible to deduct a limit of $500,000. This sounds like a great deal (and it was a much better deal than 2009’s $250,000 deduction cap), but this deduction is still only covers 25% of the total cost of new equipment a business could purchase.

In 2018, this deduction was raised significantly.

As of this year, the passage and signing into law of Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct up to $1 million dollars on equipment that is purchased or financed in 2018. This means you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE of all Equiinet equipment purchased for your business! There has never been a better time to update your company’s old phone systems and computer software with Equiinet. Plus, with Equiinet’s new Phone System Buy Back, there’s never been a better time to update your business equipment and save money in the process.

How does this work?

Essentially, between the dates January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018, your business maylease or purchase any of the following items (and more!) and receive a full deduction of the total purchase prices. These items include:

1. Office equipment (including phone systems, printers, copiers, fax machines, etc.)
2. Office furniture
3. Computers
4. Computer software(that is purchased or financed from outside your company)
5. Tangible personal property used in business

Simply keep complete records of all the business equipment you leased or purchased during 2018 (including where you acquired the equipment from and the date it was acquired and put into service), and fill out IRS form 4562 when you file for your 2018 taxes. It couldn’t be easier!
